11:06 am
police tried to follow or ping one of the cell phones that was stolen. but that didn't work out. and the students say they believe that this place may have been robbed before. but i spoke with san francisco police and they say they haven't had any calls for service here within the past six months. the students also say that their lease is up next month and they plan to move. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, nbc bay area news. right now, we can tell you a local emergency has been declared in east palo alto following recent storm damage. heavy rain back in late descent the san francisquito creek over its banks, damaging homes and city infrastructures. city leaders say the levee needs major improvements and hopes the state can help pay for flood control projects. flood victims are waiting to see that happen. >> fix the levee. it needs to be fixed. people's lives are in jeopardy. >> at this point, we're looking at actually walls, walls created

11:08 am
we are headed towards the 60s. last day of that frigid morning frost as well. keep that in mind tomorrow morning. we'll trade in the frost for the fog. temps will stay mild in the afternoon. a few more clouds. a chance for some showers which is actually looking a little bit more promising. a really tricky forecast as to where and when we'll get the showers. i think i've got it nailed down at this point. >> might be tricky but not going to elude christina loren. >> i like to be confident about these systems and these cut-off lows make it tough. >> you love bouncing around that weather department, too. thank you. it has been another difficult and emotional morning in newtown, connecticut, for the first time since that deadly shooting spree at sandy hook elementary almost three weeks ago. students and teachers who survived the attack returned to class. nbc's jay gray is taking a look at where the kids are going back to school. >> reporter: ribbons and posters

11:11 am
11:12 am
♪ yer always after me lucky charms! whoa. i forgot how good these taste! [ lucky ] ♪ they're magically delicious now all general mills big g kid cereals have more whole grain than any other ingredient in cereals like lucky charms and cinnamon toast crunch, the delicious way to help them grow up strong. this just in to our newsroom, secretary of state hillary clinton will return to work next week. this is according to her spokesperson. this as she's now out of a new york hospital after being
11:13 am
treated for a blood clot near her brain. clinton was surrounded by her husband, former president bill clinton, and her staff as she left the building last night. doctors say the clot formed back in december after she fainted while recovering from the flu. she's now being treated with blood thinners. clinton's medical team is confident she will fully recover. no doubt about it, it was a long, long odyssey to get here. but that fiscal cliff deal is finally done and now it's officially signed by the president. president obama ordering the bill to be signed via autopen because he's back in hawaii celebrating the holidays with his family. the autopen is actually a device in washington, d.c. that replicates the president's significant. the president is also signing a $633 billion defense bill. that's for next year. staying in washington, just minutes ago congress members voted to reelect john boehner as speaker of the house.
11:14 am
this was a day after the fiscal cliff was officially averted. now that that's behind them, the new team has a new fight ahead of them. as nbc bay area's tracie potts reports from capitol hill, they already have a full plate. >> reporter: the 113th congress takes its oath this afternoon with 56 new democrats, 38 new republicans and a record number of women. the youngest, hawaii's tulsi gabbert. john boehner has announced the first order of business, a vote to provide billions to victims of superstorm sandy. >> the bottom line is that between friday morning and january 15th, we'll bring in $60 billion that's absolutely necessary for new jersey and connecticut. >> reporter: also tops on their agenda, raising the debt ceiling so america can borrow more to pay its bills. republicans will insist on cutting spending first. >> the president is addicted to spending. he wants to spend.
11:15 am
he wants a new credit card after he's maxed out the last one. >> if the president thinks he's not going to negotiate, he better think again. he's president of the united states, not emperor of the president. >> reporter: the last time there was a fight over the debt ceiling, the u.s. saw its first-ever downgrade. >> it may take another downgrade. the serious economic consequences that flow from it to jolt us back to some kind of reality. >> reporter: a new congress with old issues still undecided. and they've got a short deadline. we may hit the debt ceiling again in just a few weeks. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> the fun never ends. just minutes ago, the federal trade commission announcing a settlement with google over a host of complaints dating back for years now. scott mcgrew joins us. some say the settlement simply falls short. >> yeah, way short. if you're one of google's competitors. an issue was does google change
11:16 am
its search results to benefit itself. and the ftc says it does. but they decided there was little harm to consumers in what google is doing. the settlement announced just a short time ago does limit google but in the most specific of ways, and ways that as a consumer you simply won't notice. executive summary here, that's the way the antitrust investigation ends, not with a fine but with a whimper. and in a related bit of news, google chairman eric schmidt will go to north korea. the "associated press" says schmidt will go as a private citizen, not representing the company. now, why, exactly is not cleerp, though the new leader the north korea, kim jong-un, has hinted as perhaps relaxing some of the internet restrictions. >> thank you so much. looks like all the rain we
11:17 am
got over christmas is paying off. rolling to an excellent start for the season, according to the department of water resources and more storms coulded a to that. what does this mean for our state? it will be able to deliver a vast majority of water for projects around the state. this is the fourth year of drought for california. another cold, brisk, chilly start to the day. christina loren, i've seen some of your live shots out there. some sun peeking through. >> yeah, it's coming in. these clouds are coming in. those will help to trap in some of the warmth for today. tomorrow morning, not as bitter cold. how low did we go this morning? you might be impressed. 26 degrees in walnut creek. 27 degrees in petaluma. in campbell, 28 degrees. and 30 this morning in palo alto. so it was a cold, cold start to the day. tomorrow morning, add an additional 5 to 10 degrees. that's what we're expecting.
11:18 am
temperatures are going to be a little bit more bearable as you wake up tomorrow morning. probably don't have to worry about frost on your windshield unless you live in the extreme interior east bay. 45 in napa. 46 in novato. 47 in san jose. and 48 degrees in gilroy. air quality much better. get out there and breathe in. 60 degrees in livermore. 61 in santa teresa. and 62 degrees in gilroy for today. through the next couple of days, onshore flow is going to pick up. we have a slight chance for some showers. jet stream is like a river of air carrying our areas of low pressure from west to east across the united states. what's going to happen is this little area of low pressure is going to break apart from the jet stream, really nothing to transport it. so it's really hard to dictate where the rain is going to come down. this is what we're thinking. a.m. dog and drizzle for the weekend, cloudy and cooler conditions. a little bit of precipitation.
11:19 am
